ng add @angular/fire
AngularFire smooths over the rough edges an Angular developer might encounter when implementing the framework-agnostic Firebase JS SDK & aims to provide a more natural developer experience by conforming to Angular conventions.
- Dependency injection - Provide and Inject Firebase services in your components
- Zone.js wrappers - Stable zones allow proper functionality of service workers, forms, SSR, and pre-rendering
- Observable based - Utilize RxJS rather than callbacks for realtime streams
- NgRx friendly API - Integrate with NgRx using AngularFire's action based APIs.
- Lazy-loading - AngularFire dynamically imports much of Firebase, reducing time to load your app
- Deploy schematics - Get your Angular application deployed on Firebase Hosting with a single command
- Google Analytics - Zero-effort Angular Router awareness in Google Analytics
- Router Guards - Guard your Angular routes with built-in Firebase Authentication checks
Angular and Firebase versions
AngularFire doesn't follow Angular's versioning as Firebase also has breaking changes throughout the year. Instead we try to maintain compatability with both Firebase and Angular majors for as long as possible, only breaking when we need to support a new major of one or the other.
Version combinations not documented here may work but are untested and you will see NPM peer warnings.
Neither AngularFire or Firebase ship with polyfills. To have compatability across as wide-range of environments we suggest the following polyfills be added to your application:
|Various ES5+ features||IE 11
Safari < 10
Chrome < 71
Safari < 12.1
iOS < 12.2
Node < 12
Safari < 10
Safari < 10.1
iOS < 10.3
Safari < 10.1

NOTE: AngularFire is maintained by Googlers but is not a supported Firebase product. Questions on the mailing list and issues filed here are answered on a best-effort basis by maintainers and other community members. If you are able to reproduce a problem with Firebase outside of AngularFire's implementation, please file an issue on the Firebase JS SDK or reach out to the personalized Firebase support channel.
NEW: Monitor usage of your application in production
AngularFireAnalyticsprovides a convenient method of interacting with Google Analytics in your Angular application. The provided

Interacting with your database(s)
Firebase offers two cloud-based, client-accessible database solutions that support realtime data syncing. Learn about the differences between them in the Firebase Documentation.
AngularFirestoreallows you to work with Cloud Firestore, the new flagship database for mobile app development. It improves on the successes of Realtime Database with a new, more intuitive data model. Cloud Firestore also features richer, faster queries and scales better than Realtime Database.
AngularFireDatabaseallows you to work with the Realtime Database, Firebase's original database. It's an efficient, low-latency solution for mobile apps that require synced states across clients in realtime.

BETA: Change behavior and appearance of your application without deploying
Firebase Remote Config is a cloud service that lets you change the behavior and appearance of your app without requiring users to download an app update. Learn more about Remote Config.
NEW: Monitor your application performance in production
Firebase Performance Monitoring is a service that helps you to gain insight into the performance characteristics of your iOS, Android, and web apps. Learn more about Performance Monitoring.

Deploying your application
Firebase Hosting is production-grade web content hosting for developers. With Hosting, you can quickly and easily deploy web apps and static content to a global content delivery network (CDN) with a single command.
Angular Universal is a technology that allows you to run your Angular application on a server. This allows you to generate your HTML in a process called server-side rendering (SSR). AngularFire is compatible with server-side rendering; allowing you to take advantage of the Search Engine Optimization, link previews, the performance gains granted by the technology, and more.
